The Night Before Christmas

UK Publisher: The Folio Society

It’s Christmas Eve, a family is sleeping, stockings hung expectantly above the fireplace, when a noise outside announces a night-time visitor… One of the most recognisable and best-loved Christmas tales, The Night Before Christmas has been read to, and read by, excited children for 200 years. Written by New York clergyman, Clement C. Moore, the poem perfectly captures the anticipation and wonder of Christmas Eve, and it shaped our image of the festive season, including the idea of St. Nicholas arriving on a sleigh pulled by reindeer.

This special anniversary edition is a visual extravaganza, with 50 pages of full-colour illustrations by Ella Beech. Brimming with nostalgia, and packed with detail and humour, all readers will be drawn into this magical tale. A stunning fold-out section and glow-in-the-dark binding design complete an extraordinary collectable edition that is the perfect festive gift for children, parents and grandparents alike.
